A small plane crashed Tuesday south of Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport, killing the pilot.

The pilot, who was not identified, was the only person on board.

Tony Molinaro, spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration, says the pilot of the Cessna reported engine trouble shortly after taking off from Mid-Continent Airport. Molinaro says the pilot was trying to return to the airport when the crash occurred about two miles from Mid-Continent. He says the plane was headed to Garden City.
